BESPOKE DEFENDER CONCEPT PEDAL CAR ON SHOW AT FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW
An exclusive Defender pedal car concept is making its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The scale Defender will help celebrate over 60 years of the vehicle’s production and is styled on the current, full-scale Defender.
The pedal car concept has been meticulously hand built in the UK and the exclusive version on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show has been constructed precisely to scale to incorporate all of the Defender’s distinctive characteristics such as protective chequer plate, cylindrical running bars and rugged off-road tyres complete with mudflaps, all helping to retain the vehicles traditional design characteristics. It also has authentic interior details featuring leather finish with trimmed seats, steering wheel and rear stowage.
The concept’s mechanical operations have not been overlooked meaning young drivers will be able to pedal both forwards and backwards thanks to the drive assembly while a spring suspension and working brakes – complete with parking brake – will allow the little one to go on many big adventures.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Branded and Licensed Goods, Lindsay Weaver said: “This is both a wonderful collector’s piece and children’s toy. It demonstrates our ability to produce goods with world class quality and attention to detail that can emulate our world class Jaguar and Land Rover cars.”
The final production version of the Land Rover pedal concept will go on sale in Spring 2016 and is expected to cost around £10,000.
